Hi. I am currently working on a simulator for a Comet 780 series CVT, which uses three torsion springs on the primary clutch. 

What I cannot find anywhere is the spring rates of those torsion springs. I have seen several charts that show the engagement rpms for different weights-springs combinations, like this one. It shows the colour code of each spring, but not the spring rate (which is necessary for my simulator). 

Thank you

Hi I am from South Africa. I am working on the same Cvt, my aim is to optimize the Cvt for better acceleration. My question is, how do I make the sheaves to move in and out? How do I make the belt to go up and down as the sheaves moves in and out?

springs, weights, and physics. out of the box, the CVT will operate properly, though not optimally. it is up to ou to tune it. there are a ton of resources on this forum on CVT tuning. there are also several books out there. Hint: They are also commonly referred to as clutches and are used quite a bit in ATV's and in snowmobiles.
